I had a very good time in Hawaii,  Since I Really like Summer time, and the beaches are AMAZING. Of all the Hawaiian Islands, Maui might be the most beloved. The island encapsulates all that Hawaii has to offer: exotic beaches (like Kaihalulu), palatial resorts  and lush terrain.

Hi. Driving from Connecticut to Nicaragua with my daughter and then driving back, (taking our time to tour around Mexico on our way back), has been my best travel experience so far.

The sights were amazing! Most people were generous, caring and helpful. We made some wonderful friends and the experience was...well...unforgettable!!
I really recommend you to drive those Incredible Views.

I love Ireland, I traveled by myself and Irish people are extremely friendly. It’s very easy to meet people and it’s also very safe. 

I’ve never been to a place where people were more likely to say hello or strike up a conversation with you, That makes you feel like you’re not alone.

The best is Iceland.

Dusk falls on a primeval landscape on the Snæfellsnes Peninsula. A final relic from the world’s last ice age, this North Atlantic island nation is a world of knife-cut valleys, gargantuan fjords, monumental cliffs, black-sand beaches, thundering waterfalls, and silent white glaciers. Recent volcanic eruptions reminds me that Iceland is still a country in the making, with changed landscapes that even Icelanders continue to discover.

Reykjavík the capital is awash in thriving cafes, high-energy clubs, friendly pubs, and a brightly-colored old town with rows of wooded houses clustered together. It’s more like a giant small town than a city. However, this city is one of the trendiest in the world, as Icelanders are obsessed with design, technology, and architecture.

My favorite so far is Thailand. It has everything from scenic park areas, rural villages, elephants, jungles, beautiful beaches, nightlife and friendly people. The weather is warm year round, just like summertime! Thailand is popular with backpackers, thrift travelers and wealthy travelers.

Tourism is their number one business for Thailand. They have excellent transportation right from the airport and throughout the country. Buses, trains and discount airlines are available. Bangkok is the capital city and has a great city rail service. There is the Skytrain, Airport Rail Link, buses and cheap meter taxis available.

Hotels and hostels are available at economy prices. But you can also choose to stay in 4 and 5 star hotels if that is your wish. Excellent restaurants to choose from. And there are also many cheap street food vendors, food courts and restaurants in supermarkets for the economy travelers.

I've have to agree that Hawaii is one of the best places I've ever been. Toured around there for a couple of weeks with my Dad and also headed over to Maui as well which was really great.

Anyway, totally agree that Hawaii is a place that everyone should visit. Good weather, great scenery and a relatively safe place to visit.

Sharm El Sheikh is home to some brilliant water sports such as snorkelling, scuba diving, windsurfing, jet-skiing or water-skiing. There are also plenty of beach activities going on such as volleyball. There are also camel rides, horse-riding and rides on quad bikes and bicycles available.

The beaches are perfect for relaxing on and there are plenty of sunbeds and parasols available. The beach is also where you will find the water sports that you want to try. There are many hotels in Sharm El Sheikh and mostly range between 4-5-stars. Mostly you will find all-inclusive although there are some self-catering options.

my favorite place to visit is Brazil hands down....especially Rio de janeiro & Sao Paulo!

Everything I read up on...made me nervous, scared, worried to visit....but it was literally all false about the crime and danger when I went there to see for myself! 

I found such a beautiful place...Rio perhaps the most beautiful place on earth! looking down over the city at night from the Cristo! or overlooking the enormous city of sao paulo from above at sunrise

The people are so nice and friendly, best culture in the world....mix of everything, every race, everyone is Brazilian, lol I believe god is even Brazilian after visiting this country for little over two month! best time of my life hands down and made many new friends for life.

If you like adventure, for me the best place to visit in the world is Cusco, Peru.
I did there 3 days rafting, which was FASCINATING ! The best rafting I have ever had.
We did like 5 hours of 4 level rafting, which is pretty scary. And Camp at night, each night in different place. The camping areas they choose where really nice, and the view was amazing.
This was one of the great adventures I had.
Also if you come to cusco of course you can do tons of different treks. Among them are the
famous inca trail which is amazing. You can also do Bungie jumping in cusco and Horse riding.
that is why I like cusco, all the adventures concentrated in one place, and the prices are really cheap compared to New Zealand or other places in the globe.
There are also organized tours from cusco that will take you 6 days to the jungle. It is called Manu Jungle and I have heard that is cool, you camp with jaguars in some places. However I haven't done this when I was there because of time constraints. But I will definitely go back to cusco so much to do....
By the way when I did horse ride, I rode so fast the horse, and fell down, almost broke my body, luckily nothing serious happened, So Beware when you do those adventures things .....

Hello Traveler.....It would also depend upon the time of year you wish to travel and your budget.

Either Southern Africa or East Africa is best for wildlife viewing Cheers...

My favorite so far is Sweden, Everything about this country is beautiful: the countryside, the cities, and especially the people.

It may be expensive, but it’s one of the most beautiful places in the world. I love how the buildings blend so well into the natural surroundings, how the mountains rise into the sky and how the rivers look like glass. If it didn’t have such a bad winter, I would move there.  

best place to travel

I can always find a reason to love a place. Even thinking of just six, I think that I could love Italy for the food, and Costa Rica for its jungles. New  Zealand is also an amazing country! The list could go on forever really. But, if one day, someone told me I could only go to six countries for the rest of my life, these would be the winners and while I might miss others, I wouldn’t regret having these destinations as my top choices.

Amazonia

The Amazonia is an immense rainforest shared by the countries of Bolivia, Brazil, Colombia, Ecuador, Guyana, and Venezuela. A significant part of the total area of 700 million hectares is not yet explored thoroughly, giving rise to the belief that many animal and plant species remain undiscovered. When you go the Amazonia, prepare for a safari adventure. You will be passing the night in jungle lodges, you will navigate the Amazon River, and you will listen to the legends of exotic animals.

I would have to say that my best trip so far was to eastern asia... thailand, cambodia and laos. I especially loved laos- the people were just so friendly and I enjoyed the slow paced-life of luang prabang. Otherwise I would say that italy has been another favorite trip! Always good food, people, weather, and sites.

My best trip ever is to Beautiful Island Sri Lanka. I began my trip in the capital, Colombo, and toured south past Bentota to Galle, and inland to Kandy and the fortress at Sigiriya, taking pictures of everything, even Sri Lankan foods, and fruits.
You can do almost everything in Sri Lanka like Safari, bird watching, swimming in beaches, hiking, etc.

Where is the best place has to be the hardest question in the world. I have been around the world twice and all depends on where your interests are. I absolutely love South America and have been to Bolivia and Colombia twice. Guatemala and Belize are great as is Mexico. Everywhere else in between is just as good and Tulum Mexico is one of my favourite places to visit. If I were you just go to as many places you can.

Peru is my favourite place! I flew into Lima, the capital, but it's very European in style and it's shrouded in mist rolling in off the ocean for 6 months of the year (I happened to go there during these 6 winter months!) I must admit that due to a lack of time I didn't make it to the Miraflores area of the city which is meant to be nice when there isn't any mist because it's up on a cliff and you have great views of the ocean. You can paraglide off the cliffs and also go surfing on the beach.
 


  However Cusco is beautiful, an Inca built city with steep cobbled, winding streets and a mystical atmosphere. I think the thin air here adds to the mysticism of the place! There are lots of places to eat and you can get cuisine from all over the world although you don't need it, Peruvian food is lovely!

  From here I visited Maccu Picchu which was amazing! I stayed in a nearby town called Aguas Calientes and took the bus first thing in the morning to see the sunrise there, unforgettable! I would have liked to have trekked the Inca trail but I didn't have time... but there's always next time, I'd love to go here again!

I went to Manu while I  was in Peru and it was very special, so much so I wrote a post about it:

Cappadocia
Turkey

A trip to the steppes of Central Anatolia is the next best thing to intergalactic travel, at a fraction of the cost and inconvenience. Centuries of wind and water have sculpted a surrealistic landscape from the soft volcanic terrain: minarets, cones, spires, “fairy chimneys,” and rocky pinnacles in shades of pinks and russet-brown soar as high as five-story buildings and cover an area of about 50 square miles. Ancient inhabitants of Cappadocia hollowed out the tufa cones and cliffs to create troglodyte-style cave dwellings that are still lived in today. A major trade route between East and West, Cappadocia was home to a dozen different civilizations. The early Christians arrived in the 4th century, sculpting from the rock domed churches, complete with vaulted ceilings, columns, and pews. The open-air museum is the site of an ancient monastic colony, once said to have had more than 400 churches, hermitages, and small monasteries. Today fifteen are open to the public. Some of the simple frescoes date back to the 8th century, but it’s the rich Byzantine frescoes of the 10th and 13th centuries that are the most astonishing.

Modern-day troglodytes must head for the utterly unique and charming Yunak Evleri hotel, a romantic web of tastefully restored connecting caves dating back as far as the 5th century.

I had an amazing time in Puerto Rico, If you love the beach this is your place. The island is rimmed with great beaches, but the best – and still a secret to most visitors – is the world-class Playa Flamenco, on wee, offbeat, laid-back island of Culebra, 17 miles off Puerto Rico’s mainland. Reached by ferry or flight, Culebra is great for beach-hopping, snorkeling or hikes in a wildlife refuge.

I travelled through Europe for over two years and for me the best place was the Greek Islands. Out of all of them, I most like Santorini - however they all have something unique to offer. I highly recommend this part of the world to others. The best thing is that the Greek Islands can be enjoyed no matter what your budget.

The Golden Temple in India, which is often called the “Darbar Sahib or Harmandar Sahib” by the Indians, is one of the oldest places of worship for the ‘Sikhs’ and is located in Amritsar, Punjab. It is considered one of the holiest, blessed and sacrosanct places in India. It is a symbol of both beauty and peace. The temple is surrounded by a small man-made lake which has tons and tones of fishes in it. This lake is supposed to have holy water. The temple can be entered from four different sides and thus symbolizes openness, acceptance. This concept is based on the old tents which were open from all four sides, welcoming travelers from all directions.
The Golden Temple has three holy trees. There is also a small Sikh Museum near the Ghanta Ghar in Amritsar which is very rich in information, especially for the first time visitors. The entire top of the temple is made of pure gold and thus adds a lot of pride and beauty to the entire temple.
During the earlier days, this place was a huge lake surrounded by a thin line of forests. It is also said that Buddha journeyed to find out the real meaning of life spent some considerable time in this place. The first guru of the Sikh community called the Guru Nank also used to meditate in this peaceful place and years after he passed away, many of his disciples kept coming back to the site and then it finally became a sacred place. It was during the Fifth Guru, Arjana when the Temple was finally built 1604. It was Guru Arjan who installed the “Guru Granth Sahib” in the temple and appointed the first reader in August 1604. The temples architecture is that of both Hindu and Muslims. On many occasions, it was destroyed by a certain set of community and rebuilt by the Sikhs.

Sorry in advance, but I have two favorite cities. My favorite city would have to be New York. The city is full of great restaurants, nightlife and the buzz just from walking up and down the streets really can't be found anywhere else. For a more exotic vacation, my favorite place to visit would be Thailand. The islands in the smaller cities off the coast are incredible. Soft white sand, $10 a night beach huts and beautiful warm water!

What an interesting forum topic I have to say!
It's interesting to see how different people 'rate' a country and what people look for in their favourite destinations!

My favourite destination has got to be Devon in the south west of England. My husband and I have just got back from a short trip there a few weeks ago and really enjoyed it. 
It has everything...historical cities, great restaurants, the seaside! What more could you ask for? Well...better weather perhaps but one can't have everything!

Definitely worth a visit if you fancy something different!

I Think Thailand! I flew there  last year and until today I still remember exactly how it felt to do elephant trekking down a hill in a rainy day. YEP! It was risky but it was something life should not be missing.

I think thai people have such friendly smile though you already all know that it is call THE LAND OF SMILE!  The food are extremely cheap but somewhat very delicious though sometimes too spicy to handle.

I somehow realize COKE tasted different around the world! haha...

SARIKA waterfall was the best achievement I have so far as I drove out of town with no direction nor ideas where to go and how!?!? I stopped at the waterfall and I was all relaxed and calmed!

I believe that people have different interests. This is what I think should be shared and might be one of the best place in the world for someone!!!

Well, this is a tough one, but we are building a travel site for Eastern Europe, so there we have some places and peeps that not so many have seen. At least comparatively. Russia is under visited, and I just finished working on data from Slovakia that revealed some of the best skiing I ever saw.

I am going to say Croatia though. I hope you guys check it out. Some of the other suggestions here are superb too. Maybe we should just suggest great places and not consider one the best? I am here in Germany, and I will show you guys some pics and video here shortly. Best til then.

New Zealand is different from many parts of the world, where they lie under snow for months on winter. Apart from the Lake Matheson, and the Ahipara's small group of sunset and it has one of the best left hand surf breaks in New Zealand, even in the depths of winter.

New Zealand has a controlled climate - which means it doesn't get exceptionally hot in summer and equally, doesn't get incredibly cold in winter, despite the fact that it's the last populated country en route to Antarctica.

The southernmost parts of the South Island can certainly feel the bite of southerly winds blowing up from the Ice, but overall, New Zealand is an easy place to spend a Holiday - no matter what time of year it is.

Having said that, there are some key things to remember if you plan on having a wonderful winter holiday in New Zealand.

There may not be snow on the ground, but there will be plenty of rain, possibly hail from time to time, and occasional fog.

There will also be a high likelihood of frost, especially if you are anywhere from Lake Taupo south. The great thing about frosty days, is that almost without exception, they turn into a beautiful blue sky, sunny day once the icicles have thawed.

So pack warm clothes and head for the places you can really enjoy the best of winter outdoors - the snow fields and skating rinks.

Make sure your hire vehicle comes with chains if you are headed anywhere near the mountains
and make sure you know how to put them on the car or van.

Try to plan your driving so you are travelling during daylight hours - and remember it gets dark by about 5.30pm in mid-winter.

Skiers and Snowboarders Welcome

New Zealand is very well endowed with great ski areas - Beautiful Lake Monowai powers one of the South Island's oldest hydroelectric stations. It occupies a long, curved valley in the southern part of Fiordland National Park - on a map, the lake looks like the letter U.

Further south, Queenstown and Wanaka are the dominant players, boasting Treble Cone and Cardrona at Wanaka, and Coronet Peak and the Remarkables in Queenstown.

Perhaps the most amazing thing about all of these ski fields is that they are at most a day's drive from the furthest north, to the furthest south. So you have plenty of options within driving distance should one field be closed.

A great way to follow the best snow conditions and combine your transport and accommodation into one, is to Hire Campervan and get a group of your friends together for the trip. You can park at the bottom of the ski field road and take a shuttle up to the top, or with fields like Coronet that have fully sealed roads all the way up the mountain, you can easily drive your campervan up to the carpark, so it can act as your base for the day's activities.



There are plenty of other activities to be enjoyed on a crisp winter's day too - a few rounds of golf on some of the world's most beautiful golf courses, doing the winery tours, which are to be enjoyed year round and of course enjoying the many cafes, bars and eating establishments around the country.

I think there is no definite "best" place in the world. Each point on the compass is worth a shot. I think it is more about how you make the most of your vacation. like in Australia you can drive a 4WD to explore places uncovered by many. In Malaysia you can homestay in the village, sail on the lake and learn about stuff they do everyday. In New Zealand you can scrape the mountains in winter and skii different slopes.. there's endless of opportunity frankly

I think different people  will have different answers. Each person has his/her own 'best place' since it's a matter of personal view and feeling. However, gathering all of the answer, we will have a set of interesting places-worth a visit. :)

I have travelled to many places and the one I love most is Sapa of Vietnam. It is a quiet moutainous region with fresh air and pictureques scene. Many ethnic minorities are living there in harmony . I do love the llife there. A trully peaceful life!

If you are interested in this wonderful place, I recommend you vietnamtourbooking. It is one of the most reliable travel agencies in Vietnam now. Everytime I want to spend holiday in Vietnam, it must always be vietnamtourbooking that I choose. They have never disappointed me yet!

Why go: Just as New York is the bright star of the States, so London is to the United Kingdom. Bursting with a multiplicity of things to do -- touring the Tower of London, circling 'round in the London Eye, curtseying to the Queen outside Buckingham Palace, visiting the Tate Modern or scarfing down some fish'n'chips -- London appeals to a variety of travelers, including couples, families and backpackers. Visitors can finish off the day with a raucous night at a popular club or a refined evening at the theater -- and start all over again in the morning. (London's myriad attractions fill more than a week of vacation).

Barbados is pretty good but don't go during the hurricane season which is round September. This beautiful island caters for every taste and should be checked out. Trust me you won't be disappointed.

If you have never had the pleasure of visiting one of Saigon's barber shops, this is one for your bucket list. These shops mainly cater to men, although it is not what you might think. You might have heard that these barber shops are a front for houses of prostitution, and I have read that in the past they may have been. This is certainly not the case today in Ho Chi Minh City. If you come across a barber shop in Saigon that is filled with 10-20 beautiful young girls wearing uniforms and looking like airline hostesses, I suggest that you go in and investigate. The girls are very friendly and they treat you like a rock star (no they are not prostitutes). You can have a shave or a haircut, a manicure, pedicure, and I would recommend finishing off with the massage. This might sound a little expensive, you would be amazed at how affordable it is to be pampered by beautiful women in Saigon. This kind of royal treatment in your home country is probably normally reserved for the rich and famous, or professional athletes and rock stars!
